Roy Halladay beat the Yankees for the third straight time, Marco Scutaro hit a three-run homer, and host Toronto handed New York its worst loss of the season last night, 14-3. New York's previous worst loss was a 12-2 home loss to Baltimore on May 20. Halladay (15-9) improved to 13-5 in 30 career games against the Yankees, allowing three runs and five hits in seven innings. He walked two and matched a season-high with nine strikeouts. Scott Downs worked the eighth before Brandon League wrapped it up in the ninth.

Marlon Byrd hit a two-out walkoff grand slam and the Texas Rangers, long after Yankees starter Joba Chamberlain left with a shoulder injury, snapped a 10-game home losing streak with a 9-5 victory last night. Already missing No. 1 starter Chien-Ming Wang and righthander Phil Hughes from a top-heavy rotation, the Yankees lost Chamberlain when he came out with a stiff right shoulder in the fifth. It was uncertain whether Chamberlain will be able to make his next scheduled start, but New York is likely to be cautious with the 22-year-old righthander - even in a tight playoff race.

For the third straight time in this spring training, Jamie Moyer pitched in a B game against the Toronto Blue Jays. Yesterday morning's exhibition, however, was quite different for the Phillies' 47-year-old lefthander and it wasn't a good different. His pitching line: five runs - all earned - eight hits, one walk, four strikeouts, three innings and quite a few expletives. "I didn't think I threw very well," Moyer said after the Phillies' 8-1 loss to the Jays. "I elevated a few too many pitches.

George Steinbrenner moved to the front row of the owner's private suite, and the celebration was on. The New York Yankees clinched their 13th straight postseason appearance, beating the host Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 12-4, last night to assure themselves of at least a wild-card berth in the playoffs. The victory, New York's 15th in 20 games, eliminated defending AL champion Detroit from postseason contention and set up a probable first-round matchup with Cleveland, the Central champion.

Alex Rodriguez ended a tumultuous weekend with a tiebreaking homer in the ninth inning against the Yankees' biggest rival. Rodriguez's solo shot on an 0-2 pitch from star closer Jonathan Papelbon gave New York a come-from-behind, 6-5 victory over host Boston last night and a 2-1 edge in the series. Rodriguez was mocked by Red Sox fans during all three games. On Friday night, many of them held masks picturing a blonde in front of their faces - a reference to photos published last week of the married Rodriguez with a blonde woman in Toronto.

Andy Pettitte retired his first 20 batters before a lamentable seventh-inning sequence spoiled both his perfect game and no-hit bid, and the visiting New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles, 5-1, last night. Pettitte (12-6) was poised to finish the seventh without allowing a baserunner, but former Oriole Jerry Hairston Jr. let a two-out grounder by Adam Jones slip through his legs for an error. Hairston was playing in place of third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who was given the night off. Nick Markakis followed with an opposite-field single inside the third-base line, drawing further groans from a crowd of 25,063 filled with Yankees fans.

Roberto Alomar and his ex-girlfriend apparently have settled her explosive lawsuit alleging he made her have unprotected sex even though he had AIDS. Ilya Dall had sued Alomar in Brooklyn, N.Y., federal court in February for $15 million. Her allegations that he demanded unprotected sex despite Alomar showing signs of HIV were never corroborated. An order from a judge yesterday said a settlement had been reached. Alomar's attorney, Charles Bach, said Dall voluntarily withdrew the suit, but wouldn't say whether his client paid Dall any money.

Adam Lind and Lyle Overbay hit solo home runs and host Toronto gave Kansas City ace Zack Greinke a rare pounding with last night's 9-3 win. Rod Barajas added a two-run shot for the Blue Jays, who boosted Greinke's ERA from 1.10 to 1.55. Seeking to join Toronto's Roy Halladay as the only nine-game winners in baseball, Greinke (8-2) was instead tagged for a season-high seven runs - five earned - and nine hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out three. The righthander dropped to 1-4 with a 7.07 ERA in his career at Rogers Centre.

CC Sabathia and the new-look New York Yankees absorbed an old-fashioned beating on Opening Day. Sabathia allowed six runs and failed to get through the fifth inning in his first start with New York, and the Yankees lost to host Baltimore, 10-5. After missing a postseason for the first time since 1993, New York spent $423.5 million on free agents Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Mark Teixeira during the offseason. Sabathia got a $161 million, 7-year deal, but the lefthander hardly looked like an ace against the Orioles, who finished last in the AL East in 2008 - their 11th straight losing season.

CC SABATHIA shook off early trouble to get a rare April win for the Yankees and backup catcher Chris Stewart hit a go-ahead, two-run single and had three RBI for the first time in his career to lead New York over the visiting Minnesota Twins, 8-3, Tuesday night. Sabathia (1-0) allowed three runs and four hits in 7 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts and one walk. After falling behind 3-1 in the third, he didn't allow a hit and retired 13 in a row during one stretch. He credited pitching coach Larry Rothschild with telling him after the third to throw more over the top. "Fastball command got a lot better," the big lefthander said.

C LEARWATER, Fla. - Roy Halladay looked like a pitcher who made the most of his work-in-progress stuff. He also looked like a pitcher who has plenty of work to do before he arrives at the level he demands of himself. After allowing two runs on eight hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Thursday afternoon, Halladay and his pitching coach chose to focus on the positives. "Physically, [it's] night and day, last year to this year, which was the goal this winter," said the soon-to-be 36-year-old-righthander, who battled back and lat problems throughout a disappointing 2012 season.

ATLANTA - Tim Hudson pitched eight scoreless innings and hit his second career home run in the Atlanta Braves' 2-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night. Hudson (6-6) allowed two hits, one walk and struck out a season-high eight, including the 1,600th of his career. He took Ricky Romero (6-7) deep to make it 2-0 with two outs in the sixth. Toronto has lost two straight and five of seven. Hudson retired 20 straight batters before Mike McCoy walked to lead off the ninth and advanced to second on Yunel Escobar's infield single.

Curtis Granderson homered and drove in four runs, Eduardo Nunez - filling in for an injured Derek Jeter - sparked a six-run second inning with an RBI single and the New York Yankees beat the visiting Texas Rangers, 12-4, last night. Brett Gardner scored three of the four times he reached base, had an RBI single among three hits and stole his 100th base batting in Jeter's leadoff spot. CC Sabathia (8-4) pitched seven innings for the win. Jeter was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf, an untimely setback for the Yankees star as he pursues 3,000 career hits.

The Blue Jays scored twice off Yankees closer Mariano Rivera in the ninth to tie it before winning it against Ivan Nova (1-2). Edwin Encarnacion opened the 10th with a single. After Jayson Nix and Yunel Escobar flied out, Snider drove a double to right-center, scoring Encarnacion with the winning run. Snider, who went 1 for 6, tossed his helmet away in celebration as the winning run scored.

He struck out nine and walked three to win for the first time since Aug. 14. "To feel like, at any moment, I could make a pitch if I had to makes a big difference," Halladay said.
